Much of the American public is now so intellectually superficial and sorely lacking in the ability to reason and evaluate truth or falsity based on evidence and inductive / deductive analysis ..

That they are not *qualified* to serve on a jury.
Thank god to this point I have never been accused of a serious crime, because being at the mercy of a jury composed of average American's is equivalent to being at the mercy of a coinflip.
I can't imagine how many innocent people are in jail based on the verdict of shallow thinking sheeplike juries that can't evaluate clear evidence without it being pre-digested and "interpreted for them"
IMO this is one of the main, overlooked lynchpins of why there is no longer any real justice left here.
9/11 proves it without a shadow of a doubt.
